[ARCHIVED] Hidalgo County Scofflaw Program Media Tour


Hidalgo County held a media tour at the Hidalgo County Tax Office on Wednesday, October 10, 2012, inviting members of the media to see how the implementation of the County’s new Scofflaw Program, which began last week, works. Under the new program, Hidalgo County residents who owe a Justice of the Peace court fine or fee over 90 days past due will now be denied services and unable to register their motor vehicle until their debt is paid in full. County officials were on-hand to demonstrate the newly implemented procedures at the tax office and provided information about what residents can expect from this new program.

County officials urge the public to check the online database, which can be found at, and take care of any outstanding payment prior to making a visit to the tax office. If flagged as a “scofflaw” on the system, registration will be denied until paid in full online or at the Justice of the Peace court.
